The Kings and Queens of England
This page describes a Qedoc learning module or quiz entitled "The Kings and Queens of England". You can download the module from this page to put on your computer. You can also launch the module straight off the web using the launch quiz link on the right-hand side of this page. Another way to access this quiz is to install the Qedoc Quiz Player and bring up its directory of downloadable quizzes. Whichever way you choose to use it, it's free.
This module will enable you to learn the the historical sequence of the English Monarchs, their reigning dates, the royal house they belonged to (Plantangenet, Tudor, Hanover etc) and recognise a portrait of each one.
The module is designed to be repeated, allowing you to build up knowledge of the subject with each cycle. The questions are generated randomly so will be different each time you run a test. There are information screens at the start of each test which outline the area of knowledge covered.
The tests are divided into 3 groups to facilitate learning:
Group 1 (Test 1) : Concentrates on understanding the different periods of history, when each period lasted and roughly which monarchs ruled during which one.
Group 2 (Tests 2,3,4,5): These each specialise in one particular period of history and allow a more detailed build up of knowledge of the monarchs and dates for that period.
Group 3 (Test 6): This is a general test that covers the whole period of English monarchy and combines the experience gained in the previous tests to see how well you can link monarchs and their dates.
The module is suitable for anyone from 10 yrs upwards.
The module contains the following activities:
- Historical Periods (20 questions)
- Saxons and Danes (20 questions)
- Normans and Plantagenets (20 questions)
- Tudors and Stuarts (20 questions)

How to use this module
To use a Qedoc learning module, the following procedure is recommended:
- Really easy: click the click here to launch hyperlink at the top right of the page. Then just wait and click your way (if necessary) through any dialogue screens. The module will launch straight off the web.
- Fairly easy: if you wish to have the module downloaded to your desktop, then start the Qedoc Quiz Player (which you can download and install on your computer if you haven't done so yet) and run through the starting dialogues until it presents you with a list of modules to load. Switch to the online learning modules tab, and the Qedoc Quiz Player will download a list of currently published modules from the web. Choose your desired module (this one) from the list. A local copy will then be kept on your computer for future use.
- Not so easy: click the download link at the bottom of the "quick facts" box and the module's ZIP file will download to your desktop. To actually use this, however, you must move it to the /player/modplay subdirectory of whichever directory the Qedoc software is installed in (usually /programme files/qedoc).
